    Flex testing the shortbus. Rear has 13" travel shocks in stock locationsm bottoms them out in both directions. Front has 11" travel shocks in stock locations, doesn't quite fully extend, and hit the compression side too early. The front shocks are the right length, they're just mounted too low on the frame.

    Suspension is homebrew shackle flip w/ summit 2" drop shackles out back, stock 52s, front is mystery "4 inch" springs up front. Yes the tires are way too small, 31x10.5x15, but the truck fit under the bar to get loaded on the boat when i moved out here. New tires are in line to be purchases, just finished a wholesale rewiring job, recovering the parts money jar.

    Why is driving on a car so much fun? Of course it would be more fun during the morning commute.....
